Zoom! In-Office Whitening
Family Dental Practice of Bloomfield offers numerous cosmetic dentistry options to help you achieve your smile goals. One of our most popular cosmetic dentistry services is in-office teeth whitening. Whitening done in a dental office rather than at home has numerous advantages including faster whitening—whiter by 5 to 10 shades in one visit—and professional strength whitening for best results. Types of in-office whitening:
Zoom! whitening – Zoom! is a popular line of whitening products that whiten teeth using a patented gel formula and acceleration light at the office. Zoom! also includes customized whitening trays and professional grade gel for at-home maintenance. One of the first whitening products formulated to or reduce tooth sensitivity, Zoom! is a popular whitening option.
Deep bleaching – This is an extended process recommended for patients who have deep stains from smoking, consuming acidic or highly colored foods and beverages (coffee, wine, red sauces), or teeth that are dulled with age. A deep bleaching process takes place over numerous visits, with at-home care performed in between these visits. The process works to whiten deep set stains because it includes a preparation step that opens your tooth enamel to absorb the product. Think of this like the way that you exfoliate your skin to open your pores and clean them more easily.
Whatever your unique whitening goals, our experienced dental care team is here to help. We offer a wide-range of whitening options to fit your smile goal, schedule and budget.
At-Home Whitening Kits
You can find shelf after shelf of at-home whitening kits at your local pharmacy. These products can be effective for patients with less severe stains, and for maintaining your in-office whitening results. At-home kits are generally of two varieties: strips and gels. Whitening strips have the active ingredient on one side, which is placed directly on your teeth. Some strips dissolve, and others should be removed after a specified amount of time. Whitening gels are placed in trays that are left in your mouth for anywhere between 15 minutes and all night.
At Family Dental Practice of Bloomfield, we can offer you custom whitening trays that will hug your teeth more closely for the best possible results. We can also offer professional grade whitening products for your at-home use if you prefer this to our in-practice whitening options.

Tooth-colored fillings are made from ceramic or plastic composite resin that can be dyed to match the natural color of teeth. These resins are especially useful when filling front teeth, and other tooth surfaces visible when you smile, talk or eat. Strength and durability are especially important for molars that play the most significant role in chewing. Though resins tend to be more susceptible to wear, the material has numerous benefits. It bonds more tightly with your natural tooth, thereby reducing the amount of tooth that needs to be removed to place the filling. The tighter bond also reduces the risk of fillings coming loose or falling out over time.
Tooth-colored fillings are gaining favor over traditional amalgam fillings because they are easier to place. The material can usually be applied directly to the tooth, shaped, and hardened using a special curing light. Tooth-colored fillings also help avoid sensitivities patients may have to metal, and remove any fear that the mercury present in amalgam fillings may be harmful.
Family Dental Practice of Bloomfield offers tooth-colored fillings that look great, feel great, and last.

Crowns are used to repair cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth. The crown becomes your tooth’s chewing surface, and should fit tightly, feel natural, and protect the remaining tooth from further damage. All-ceramic crowns are popular with most dental professionals. The material can be molded to look and feel more like your natural tooth than traditional crown materials such as amalgams or porcelain fused crowns. Each all-ceramic crown is uniquely created for each patient. The hand-crafted restoration is made for Family Dental Practice of Bloomfield patients in our convenient, on-site lab. Using E4D digital scanning technology, we are able to create and place your beautiful all-ceramic crown in just one day. Most patients have their natural tooth prepared, receive digital scans of their teeth, and have a customized crown milled and placed all in less than three hours. Patients who are unable to commit that amount of time to one visit can choose to have two shorter visits that fit into their schedule.
All-ceramic crowns look great and like tooth-colored fillings can be glazed to match your existing teeth. Amalgam and porcelain fused fillings look less natural and are more likely to develop sensitivity to hot or cold foods.
